Reasons For Living (Johnny Vicious Mix) Lyrics


Everyone's looking, everyone hides
Everyone's telling everyone lies
We're changing the subject, we're turning away
Away from the heart of it allYou say you are happy
Do you think this is fun?
Well it's only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living, you feel so alive
Well you know everything dies[Chorus]
Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of usWelcome to another day
It don't seem that different 'cause nothing has changed
I try to remember, try to remember
When we were just running in place
Reasons for living, never come cheap
But even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying or trying to say
Is that there must be a better way[Chorus]It's already in you, it's already there
You may disagree, but I don't really care
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the heart of us?
Did you ever find out
Did you ever find out what's at the heart?Tell me all your wildest dreams
You don't really care, you don't know what they mean
Raiding in the closets, skeleton keys
You know it's easier than you think[Chorus]Reasons for living are all really fine,
Leaving me cold thought they're not really mine
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the heart of us.I don't know
I don't know

Duncan Scott Sheik (born November 18, 1969) is an American singer-songwriter. Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Sheik's upbringing was split between his parents' home in South Carolina and that of his grandparents in New Jersey. His grandmother, a piano graduate of The Juilliard School, taught him to play the piano and encouraged his musical development. He graduated from Phillips Academy in 1988, after which he studied semiotics at Brown University.

Sheik began his professional musical career playing for other acts, including Liz And Liza (with Lisa Loeb and Liz Mitchell), and played on His Boy Elroy's 1993 album. Through connections from fellow Brown alum Tracee Ellis Ross, Sheik's music gained the attention of executives at Atlantic Records. Duncan Sheik's eponymous debut album for Atlantic spawned the 1996 hit single "Barely Breathing" in the US, which remained on the charts for 55 straight weeks. In 1998, he was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Barely Breathing."

In addition to his work as a solo artist, he collaborates with the poet and writer Steven Sater. Together, they have written an album of art-pop songs, ''Phantom Moon'', a Broadway musical, ''Spring Awakening'', and the score for the film ''A Home at the End of the World''. They are currently working on a new musical based on the story of "The Emperior and the Nightingale", which will have its workshop premiere in 2007 at the La Jolla Playhouse.

As of 2009, Whisper House is the sixth studio album recorded by Duncan Sheik, released in the United States on January. The album is Sheik's first for the RCA Victor label, as well as his first in the wake of success from composing music for the Tony award-winning musical Spring Awakening.
